He was being interviewed about the magnificent achievement of the company in staging Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen, in their small venue tucked away in the Cotswolds. I’ve long been an admirer of great theatre and achieving the impossible [...]

Fireworks for a Winter Wedding

By |Halo FX|

I’m sure when Charlotte & Geraint booked the Draycote Hotel to celebrate their wedding in December they had glistening snow in mind. Not the rain and wind that they had to contend with.
